This canvas is part of a series that Josep Maria Sert painted for the decoration of Kent House, belonging to Sir Saxton Noble, in Knightsbridge, London. The canvas was attached to a door in the Bucrania Room, as was its pair entitled Satyr watching some Nymphs dancing, also in the Colección Santander. In his book "Josep Maria Sert. His Life and Work", Alberto Castillo drew attention to the influence of Michelangelo on the figure of the satyr.
